Dream Deferred

I've been a fan of Langston Hughes ever since I first read Dream Deferred back in high school a long time ago:
What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore--
And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?
I bring this up because I'm reviewing Shame of the Nation by Jonathan Kozol and will be brainstorming my thoughts on education and race here. While you're waiting, you can check out this Newsweek article. If anyone wants to help fact check this book, let me know--I'm lazy.
